ABOUT HARMONIOUS

We are a group of people who love creating games with a positive bent. We specialise in transformational games, games that can benefit people psychologically, educationally, and more. It is our dream to create interactive experiences that can make people better people, and we believe games are the best medium to make our dreams a reality.

We are working on projects with innovators in educational games, correctional services, and academic research. At Harmonious we value the experience that games can bring to new sectors to enhance, teach, and inspire change.

JOE PARK

COO & STUDIO DIRECTOR

Joe is Harmonious’ biz whiz, the spreadsheet master, and email connoisseur. He comes from a Computer Science background, but now spends most of his time wrangling emails not code. He worked with Laura on Putty Pals and subsequently developed a passion for Psychology and games which drives his biz deving, finding like-minded people for us to partner with on transformational projects. Since 2017, Joe's been guest tutoring final year Game Dev students at Swinburne University. When he’s not managing spreadsheets at work, he spends his time playing management games at home. Loves a good dad joke.
